THE FALCON Presents PHOEBE LEGERE June 28 8PM

Phoebe Legere Will Make Your Heart Sing!




















6/28  8pm
The Falcon
1348 Route 9W
Marlboro, NY 12542

PHOEBE LEGERE at THE FALCON

Phoebe “Songbundle” Legere is a virtuoso piano player who has mastered seven instruments. Phoebe is an award-winning accordion player, a folk-blues guitar stylist, a powerhouse vocalist, and an award-winning songwriter.

She brings her musical style, grace and substance to The Falcon in Marlboro, New York, on June 28.

Legere is an Acadian, and like all Acadians she is métis, a racial hybrid of Native American and French. Phoebe Legere is passionately devoted to preserving the folk music traditions of the Acadian ("Cajun"), Abenaki and Mi'kmaq people.

As a child, Legere spent summers with her Legere cousins in Louisiana, speaking French and absorbing the rich and robust traditions of Cajun country. It was there that Legere began to notice striking parallels between Cajun music, Early Jazz, and Indigenous Canadian traditional songs. 

The taproot of Jazz and Cajun music goes deep into the soil of North America. (Jazz was invented by a Cajun whose real name was Ferdinand Joseph LaMothe…better known as Jelly Roll Morton!) Legere’s show on June 28 reveals the rich, indigenous and spiritual roots of Jazz and Cajun Music.

Legere and M’ikmaq scholar Pritchard will be presenting some of their amazing musical discoveries June 28 as part of a new Native American series called Tribal Harmony at The Falcon.

“I will be playing the spoons, accordion and the beautiful grand piano at The Falcon while Evan plays guitar and the Geegumondeedesk, a pre-spoons percussion instrument made from a single piece of spit ash. 

"We both play Native American cedar flutes and we'll be doing songs from my CD Children of the Dawn in addition to some of Les Grandes Chansons françaises. We Native Americans and the French are ancient allies, lovers, comrades and friends! .We'd love to see you June 28, by the waterfall, at the FALCON in Marlboro, NY."
